In the bottom left of the screen, you can choose to display the speed, and distance to the next station.  Two questions:

  1. Speeds (certainly in mph) are displayed to two decimal places- is it possible for the user to change that to one or even none?  It seems a little over accurate, and the flickering can catch the eye.  The same applies to the distance to the next station- one or two decimal places would be fine, and make both easier on the eyes?
  2. The distance display counts "stations" you pass- is there a way to gie the distance to the next calling point?

Thanks!

Real world trains (continental Europe, km/h) show no or one decimal place if they have a digital speedometer.

I've improved the station distance display for today's build by adding a second line where the next station is a pass.
This shows the distance to the next stop.

The number of decimal places displayed for speeds etc. in HUD elements is fixed in code at the minute. It wouldn't be difficult to add an option for the number of decimal places displayed to the Interface.cfg, but I definitely don't think it's worth adding to the menu or anything.

Grand, thanks!

That sounds fair enough to the decimal places- it makes it changeable,  without too much work to do it?
